We finally settled on just hanging out in the Rexburg area, going swimming and getting dinner, you know, just relaxing.
But Ben is very spontaneous and after I went on my run that morning, Ben said, "Let's go to Yellowstone instead."
So we went! I'm not very good at being spontaneous, so this was good practice. We packed up some snacks, put on our hiking shoes and were out the door, on our way to Yellowstone.
I had never been to Yellowstone before. I know, I know, it's a shame! But we loved it and had a blast! And, seeing as how the entrance is only an hour and half from our house, we bought an annual pass...so...you know, if anyone wants to come visit...(hint.hint.nudge.nudge).
Anyhow, here are some pictures from our awesome adventure:
|There were buffalo EVERYWHERE. It was so cool.|
And Ben kept saying, "Look at me! I'm a buffalo in
Yellowstone!" And it was hilarious...but maybe you had to be there.
|So pretty! (The landscape, not us...). And this was just by the side of the road!|
|These are the Paint Pots.|
|It's ol' Fayful!|
Yes, it kept reminding me of Dennis the Menace.
|It was pretty windy, and when Old Faithful got going, we were|
sitting right in the mist...so we got pretty wet. No wonder no one was sitting there...
|I can't remember the name of this one, but the steam was incredible.|
|These were our favorites. It's so crazy to me that these colors are |
just rockin around in nature. The picture doesn't give it justice-
It was very orange-y and blue-y. Very pretty.
|And very steamy.|
|You can see the color better in this picture...but not as good as being there.|
